D Nina Daly of First Step Preschool N ina Daly, owner and director of First Step Preschool, Inc. in Franklin Lakes, has been serving the community with a successful learning experience that prepares her students for kindergarten. “My philosophy has always been that children should be excited about learning and want to come to school,” says Nina. The curriculum is academic with early phonics and advanced math, but priority is focused on good self-esteem. Nina states, “If children feel good about themselves, they can handle whatever life has in store for them. I am proud to see my former students going on to achieve Nina Daly, Andy, Tommy, Tristan and Cooper great things in the community.” Most of Nina’s staff has been with her since the school was established 14 years ago. Special programs offered at the facility include music, dance, art, foreign language, cooking, and kindergarten enrichment. “Class sizes are small, allowing for individual attention for all students,” Nina adds. “A child’s first years at school set a foundation for all their educational goals. We pride ourselves with knowing our staff members are caring individuals who provide a learning environment that any parent would want for his or her child.” This year, Nina plans to “go green” with the physical environment in order to accommodate children with allergies. First Step Preschool is located at 454 Pulis Avenue in Franklin Lakes. For information about availability, call (201) 847-8198, or visit our website: www.firststeppreschoolnj.com. Let Kristin Dahl streamline your wardrobe ouldn’t it great to Wyour aclosetbeand show have fashionista look through you how to make the most of your storage space and your wardrobe? Kristin Dahl of Midland Park has made a name for herself doing just that. Kristin’s runs a successful home-based business (Kristindahl.com) organizing clients’ closets and providing personal shopping services. Formerly a fashion merchandiser and industry representative for designers like Laundry by Shelli Segal, Jenne Maag and Magaschoni, Kristin is now using her experiKristin Dahl ence and fashion savvy to aid individual, local clients. Kristin finds that many women need to build a core wardrobe and build from there. She believes every woman needs a great pair of jeans, a blazer, khakis, great T-shirts, shoes, and handbags – all of which she considers building blocks. Kristin cautions against over-buying or simply purchasing an outfit that is displayed on a mannequin but cannot be used with any other pieces of clothing to create new looks. Cleaning closets may seem like a chore for some, but Kristin enjoys this aspect of her business. Once the best items have been identified, Kristin organizes the pieces that are staying by color and season and gives away the rest. She finds that her ability to identify with the lifestyles and needs of her clients makes it easy for clients to open up their minds -- and their closets -- to her. Trunk shows are another exciting aspect of Kristin’s fledgling business. Women who host her travelling collection in their homes receive free clothing, and their friends get to preview the latest fashions at great prices. Contact Kristin today at 201-444-6244 or visit www.kristin-dahl.com. Be sure to ask about her gift certificates, which are a subtle way to get someone you love organized or dressed to perfection or to take the burden off someone too busy to shop.
